  This paper reports the levels of HACCP implementation, costs of implementation and operation, and benefits of implementation for the Greek meat industry. Hundred twenty enterprises were surveyed, with a 51.66% response rate. Only 24.19% of the enterprises interviewed had totally adopted HACCP, while 22.58% did not have an interest in adoption. The norm of ISO 9000 appeared to be an intermediate step in HACCP implementation. The results indicate that investment in new equipment and microbiological tests of products accounted for most of the implementation and operational costs, respectively. The main benefit reported was reduction in microbial counts, while staff training was reported as a significant problem. The study also shows that although the level of total HACCP implementation is not high, HACCP has implications for both the domestic and international markets. This study offers new information about the costs and benefits of HACCP implementation by the Greek meat industry. The main objective is to analyze the degree to which the HACCP system has been implemented by the meat industry, and the relationship between HACCP implementation and ISO 9000. In addition, it indicates the importance of major costs, problems, and benefits of implementation and their impact on domestic and international markets.

  In this research an evaluation-in terms of investments-of hydroponics greenhouses is carried out, as well as the possibility of the development of greenhouse crops cultivations, such as vegetables and flowers, in them is explored in Western Macedonia. The survey was realized between the years 2002-2006, in a model greenhouse, which was installed by the Public Power Corporation S.A., in soils that are to be restored after the excavation of lignite. In this research, a comparative analysis of different hydroponics systems was carried out, in relation to the initial investment by the Net Present Value and the inexpensiveness of the cultivations. The findings indicate that only with subsidy is such an investment advantageous.

  The present work refers to a research that took place on Limnos, an island found in North Aegean, the more northern islander region of Greek Archipelagos. In the frame of the research, the factors that shape and influence the rural growth of the island were studied. Via these factors, the structure of rural occupation, as well as the multi-activity phenomenon is described. Moreover, the forms of rural occupation are combined with the farmer’s confidence and opinion concerning the brand name rural products of the island. From the results of this research it becomes clear that the phenomenon of rural multi-activity is particularly intense and is related to other occupations in the tertiary sector. The brand name rural local products are mostly supported by the exclusively and mainly occupied in primary sector people, while the multi-activated young people that are secondarily or auxiliary occupied in agriculture dispute the value of local brand name products and their contribution in the growth of the island.

  This study describes a multi-criteria decision-making framework employed to evaluate and rank three tourism destinations, located in the northern and central Greece. Additionally, innovatory elements are the incorporation of differing levels of socioeconomic data (destination image and destination personality) within the decision framework and the direct determination of the PROMETHEE II preference thresholds. The developed methodology provides a user-friendly approach, promotes the synergy between different stakeholders, and could pave a way towards consensus. The main aim of this study was to describe the design implementation and use of a Decision Support System (D.S.S), which applies new methodological approaches for the evaluation and ranking of several tourism destinations.
